The nHow, Europe’s first Music Hotel – in the heart of Berlin, Germany. Located on the banks of the river Spree right between east and west Berlin, and at the epicentre of the music, fashion and creative scene, the new lifestyle hotel was recently opened in November 2010, and it has yet to meet its match.
The amazing cantilevered exterior is designed by architect Sergei Tchoban which harmonically complements the stunning and dramatic hotel interior by American designer Karim Rashid. The nHow Berlin represents a new generation of luxury accommodation, it centers on music and design representing a lively, offbeat and dynamic flair through a mixed palette of bright-colored interiors and organic lighting, with a very welcoming appeal to cosmopolitan business travellers, international jet-setters, party animals and the hottest bands and musicians – what unites them all is the love of music. It’s the first hotel in the world with 2 professional music studios.
“my vision engages technology, visuals, textures, color, as well as all the needs that are intrinsic to living in a simpler less cluttered but more sensual environment. design touches us on every level, and design can continue to define and shape our dimensional interior environments and create new progressive human behaviors and new languages. I always question whether the physical world is as experiential, as seductive, as connective, as inspiring, as personalizable, and customizable as the digital world. that is what I tried to achieve with nhow hotel berlin by making a space that coexists with the data-driven digital infostethic world.“ -Karim Rashid
